Yep, a friend sent me a link to it.  If I were close enough, I'd take out a loan to buy that one!  2 sets of what appear to be original BH wheel weights too!

That'd be a heavy machine. What would that weigh in at?

Likely is original.  Ark loaders is what Bush Hog used. They didn't build their own loaders.

With it like it sits, I'd guess around 1500+ pounds.

I don't see $2500 there but since its a car dealership I'd be interested to see their bottom line. A neat machine, I'd love to own it, but not worth breaking the bank on.

I don't know why, but it looks like someone has welded on a 2nd "tower to front bumper bracket" box section on top of the original.

Well, almost any complete front loader setup will set you back $1000 to $1500 by itself, so that makes the tractor $1000 to $1500, depending on the value of the loader and the JB has a soft cab (OE???), and 2 sets of wheel weights.

Dang, too bad it wasn't listed sooner.  I was in Taunton, MA for work this week, twiddling my thumbs after hours with nothing to do.  I would have loved to have scoped it out in person.

The Curtis cab with soft sides was popular around here. I have 2 of them. One is white and the other is green. The windshield and frame are set at varying angles to accomadate different machines. That seems like a real find for BH collectors. Good Luck, Rick

Since this guy has a manual & parts list, we need him to upload them to GTtalk so the rest of us can have copies!!!!

In case U are wondering where I have been, I have been fatiqued by low thyroid output possibly caused by the radiation from the CT

scans. Also doing home improvement. This includes Hi Eff washer & dryer, different furnace & AC & dish washer.

I have scrapped the idea of making a crawler from the 2 MF chassises. If  the mod. 15 hydros will run the same speed both ways,

I plan  on trying to build an articulated bidirectional tractor. Ford once had one that U could face either way & I think it ran the same

speed either way. It was 2-wheel drive. I  will ride on one side of the hinge & the motor on the other side. The seat will face front or

back,left or right, & will swivel around the steering column, which will be vertical. I haven't decided on location of the other controls

yet. I want to have a PTO on the motor end for a snowblower & a 3-point hitch on both ends.

Daniel, sorry about the problems your parents are having. Our prayers are with you & your family.
